We’re excited to see your works!

LitArt Hub is accepting short stories, poems, and artworks for posting on our website.

Are you a budding talent? You can have a space where you can express your unique writing voice or talent so others can discover you and your craft. If you are an experienced creative, you’re welcome here too! Our doors are open for your out-of-the-box ideas or experimental work.

We are looking for writing and art that are imaginative, fresh, or a different take on the usual trope or plots. Your work must captivate, move, or inspire readers or viewers. Only submit works that were not previously published (including digital and/or online content) and to which you have ownership. We are not grammar nazis, but your work will standout better if it has little to no grammar and/or spelling errors. 

It may take a bit of an effort but please process each of your submissions individually. Do not submit multiple entries in one document/file.

We will not collect submission fees, but we are highly selective with pieces we publish. Please allow us until after each of the reading period to reply before re-sending your work. 

We know that you pour your heart into your pieces. Unfortunately, we cannot pay our contributors at this time. That is why we accept simultaneous submissions. But if your work gets picked up elsewhere, send us an email at to withdraw your submission.

We accept original stories that have not been previously published. We consider social media posts and other online content as digitally published works.

Although we accept most genres and even cross-genre works, there are themes we make a hard pass on. We do not accept stories that include graphic violence, gratuitous sex, and vulgar language.

We only accept original works. Poems should not be previously published. We consider social media content and posts on personal sites as digitally published works. We do not accept translations.

Although we accept most genres and even cross-genre works, there are themes we make a hard pass on. We do not accept stories that include graphic violence, gratuitous sex, and vulgar language.
